Advanced Engineering launches survey to gain industry views
Advanced Engineering, the UK’s largest annual gathering for engineers, manufacturers and supply chain professionals, has launched its Voice of Industry Survey, which aims to gauge the views of those across the industry. The survey, which questions respondents’ views on topics such as the political climate, the skills gap and the future of the sector, is open for those across the industry to complete ahead of the show on October 30 and 31, 2019.
Earlier this year, Advanced Engineering launched its Voice of Industry report, which presented a range of insight from large scale and SME businesses on a variety of industry challenges and topics. Now, the organisers of Advanced Engineering are looking to exhibitors and visitors of the show, as well as those across the wider engineering and manufacturing sector, to provide their views and opinions on the state of the UK industry.
“The times we find ourselves in are full of uncertainty, but the UK engineering sector can come out of this era stronger than ever before,” said Jeremy Whittingham, Head of Marketing at Advanced Engineering. “It is our aim to give a voice to the engineering industry to show how resourceful and resilient it can be, regardless of whatever challenges it may face.
“By creating a unified perspective from those in the industry, not only will responses help direct us and ensure we are covering topics that are important to our exhibitors and attendees in years to come, it also has the potential to influence industry stakeholders and government directives moving forward. Now, more than ever, those in the industry need to speak up about what kind of support is still needed in order for the UK to prosper.”
In addition to its report and survey, the Advanced Engineering show held at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, gives exhibitors and attendees the opportunity to network with some 15,000 professionals in multiple fields of engineering and manufacturing. This year Medical Device Engineering will become the sixth show zone, joining zones covering Aerospace, Composites, Automotive, Performance Metals and Connected Manufacturing.
